How To Interpret Your Dreams
Question from a reader:
Dream interpretation is always subject to the individual and their own symbolism, but it can be helpful to look up dream symbols in a Jungian dream dictionary like Dreammoods.com.
“I have been awakening for awhile now and more comes all the time. Last night I had an experience of cool breath blowing into my mouth. I prayed Hail Mary and felt light glowing all inside and outside my body. My heart was so full and felt open and sharing energy. I heard so clearly, “We are taking you home.” I dreamed of water and so many faces, and my house that I owned before I met my husband. I know the time is so different so it doesn’t mean I’m dying now. Or was it to say the dream was a visit home?”
That’s why it’s really up to you to interpret your own dreams, as I can’t identify that personal symbolism for you.
An actual dream book will be more thorough than the online database. I own The Dream Dictionary from A-Z which includes almost exactly the same info as Dreammoods, but with even more information.
I often find that dreams can be a mix of personal symbolism and universal symbolism, and sometimes it’s not just one meaning or the other, but both.
Just listening to your description, I think there’s a link between “We’re taking you home,” and the fact that you then saw an actual house that you used to live in. This could perhaps allude to the past. Think about the person that you were, the challenges you were facing and the growth that you experienced during that time period.
“To see your childhood home, your hometown, or a home that you previously lived in indicates your own desires for building a family and your family ideologies. It also reflects aspects of yourself that were prominent or developed during the time you lived in that home. You may experience some unfinished feelings that are being triggered by some waking situation. Alternatively, the dream may represent your outdated thinking.”
Were the faces that you saw people from that time period?
Water is indicative of emotional states. Consider the state of the water – was it turbulent or calm?
